The Festival of Saturnalia

This morning we had a fantastic visit from Matthew Bellwood. He really brought our Roman learning to life helping us understand about how the Roman society played out in the marketplace of ‘Castra Diva’ town in Britannia now known as Chester. We met lots of different people from the Curia to slaves and everyone in between. We learnt all about the Roman Gods including a goat sacrifice to the God of Saturn. To finish our workshop we re-enacted some battles from the colosseum.
